Have you tested pd-l2ork?

Subject: Re: [PD] Bugs in Pd-Extended in Ubuntu LTS
Just a quick follow up on this topic. I have just compiled Miller's latest
version (0.45-4), and the bug that's crashing X is still there. This time I
managed to reproduce it somehow by creating an empty object to make a
subpatch and typing "pd m" (and bang it crashed). Same behaviour with the
same patch in pd-extended 0.43.4.
It's super annoying...

Once pd-extended removes unnecessary dependency on pd-utils you will. Until
then you will need to uninstall one and install the other.

Katja, I will try to check if this is a problem with pulse audio. I also
have a jackdbus running even when applications supposed to use it are closed
(Ardour and Pd in my case).
Can I install pd-l2ork alongside pd-extended, or do I have to uninstall it

Guys, Can you check if pd-l2ork works OK and please report? We provide
native Ubuntu builds (built for 12.04).

I'm on Xubuntu 12.04 with Pd-extended 0.44 and have experienced big
troubles with Jack too. I only use Jack for complex routings like
Skype to Pd or Kdenlive to Pd via PulseAudio+Jack. I got a lot of
jackdbus-errors initially, and jack wouldn't restart. Don't know if
it's the same issue which you're experiencing. Anyway, it seems that
this was about jackd2 writing config files to different places, which
can be out of sync under certain conditions. Not sure if this is a
correct description but it is my interpretation. Looking at running
processes in command htop, I always noticed a jackdbus processing
still running when the dbus error was given. Killing the jackdbus
process sometimes helped. But in the course of time I've somehow
learned how to avoid it at all, by carefully considering the right
order of operations when starting processes. I have PulseAudio
disabled by default, so I can start Jack first, then the Jack clients,
of which PulseAudio may be one. Then eventually the PulseAudio
clients. When killing processes, everything in reverse order. I don't
like this hocus pocus, but well, I'm happy if it works at all. On
Kubuntu I couldn't get PulseAudio to cooperate with Jack.
